LaserSoft® Sag Profiler is a field data collection app for electric utility professionals to measure the span, sag, and tension of conductor wires. Measurements are made directly to conductors hanging between two attachment points or spans. Now you have an easy-to-use system that can be operated from a safe location with instant access to these critical parameters.
Take multiple shots along the conductor, including both attachment points. LTI surveying instruments automatically send data into Sag Profiler creating a three-dimensional XYZ coordinate for each point measured. In addition, you can map the ground beneath the span and any other obstructions in the way. Each shot is recorded as a specific type and a checklist is updated.
Sag Profiler instantly calculates the span, sag, and tension values for the conductor. It even displays the height and location of the lowest point on the wire. If desired, GPS can be used to geo-reference the data so it will match up with existing maps and satellite imagery.
Report files can be sent to a PC and imported into most CAD-based programs capable of reading a TXT file. Reports can also be opened in Microsoft® Excel and many GPS visualization programs capable of reading a GPX or KML file.
